The Crosby-Ironton Rangers are accustomed to taking every opponent's best shot. That is part of being an undefeated team on the cusp of a championship.
But the physical crew from up north had not faced the speed and athleticism that St. Bernard's brought to their Class AA semifinal matchup Friday night at Target Center.
Crosby-Ironton needed resolve and staunch defense at crunch time to pull out a 66-60 victory and vault into today's state championship game.
